|Potato & Garlic Storage Sacks|
The potatoes have been plentiful in my CSA this season. Last year, I managed to winter over some of them - I was still enjoying those potatoes in February. So I was pretty excited when I found these Potato and Garlic Storage Sacks at Crate and Barrel.
The potato version holds up to 8 pounds, and the smaller one, which will probably house shallots, holds two pounds. Hmmm, should have gotten two of the smaller ones so I'd have one for garlic and one for shallots.
The sacks will keep them in the dark so they are less likely to sprout, and linen allows them to breathe. There is a sturdy hanging hook, and drawstrings at the top for loading, and the bottom for unloading. It's a built in first in, first out system, which should prevent the stinky potato surprise.
